Colin Farrell
We thought Marvel had got their Sorcerer Supreme when Joaquin Phoenix entered "final talks" for the role back in August, but those talks are "dead dead dead," according to Phoenix's publicist.

Marvel clearly isn't in any rush to make a Black Widow movie, and although Scarlett Johansson is presumably on the hook for appearances in any number of the studio's assorted projects, her lack of a franchise to shoulder on her own leaves her free to star in all kinds of interesting stuff in her downtime -- like, say, Under the Skin or Her.

Pacific Rim
It's going to be quite awhile before we really get an honest look at the upcoming Pacific Rim sequel -- that April 2017 release date seems awfully distant on the horizon at this point -- but if there's one person who has any idea of what we can expect, it's director/co-writer Guillermo del Toro, who recently sat down with Collider for a discussion that included a few tantalizing details.

Minecraft
We all chortled when Warner Bros. decided it was going to go ahead and make a movie "based on" Lego bricks, but that turned out pretty okay for everyone, so we'll refrain from laughing at the news that the studio is forging ahead with an "adaptation" of the hugely successful online game Minecraft -- even though it really does seem like they might be pushing their luck with this one.

DC
We knew Warner Bros. execs had big things in store for fans of its DC properties, as well as visions of a new franchise for its Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but the studio dropped some major news regarding scheduling for those titles -- as well as its plans for more Lego movies -- during a shareholders meeting today.

Javier Bardem
According to TheWrap, Javier Bardem is in "early talks" to play one of the bad guys in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. He would play Captain Brand, a ghost who holds a grudge against Jack Sparrow for the murder of his brother and is looking for a supernatural object to help him get his revenge.

'Captain America 3' Adds Robert Downey, Jr.; Will Kick Off Marvel's 'Civil War' Storyline

Cap Iron
When Robert Downey, Jr. sent film sites around the world into a frenzy last week by intimating -- and then backpedaling very quickly -- the idea that he might be in talks for Iron Man 4, we held off on writing up any of the action, mainly because it seemed like Marvel might have an actual announcement hiding up its sleeve.

Kate Beckinsale Could Return to 'Underworld'

Underworld
Given that Kate Beckinsale has already starred in four Underworld movies -- and that the series seemed to be moving on without her for next year's Beckinsale-free Underworld: Next Generation, starring Theo James -- it seemed somewhat safe to assume that she'd wedged herself into that black bodysuit for the final time.
